Learn all about the compelling town from your guide as you travel, and then enjoy free time in San Gimignano to explore at your own pace. Admire the fascinating architecture around Piazza della Cisterna and Piazza del Duomo, and have your camera ready for photos by the Collegiata – San Gimignano’s Romanesque cathedral. Perhaps take a stroll along the Via Francigena strip – an ancient pilgrimage road – or visit the shops to browse the locally made handicrafts and beautiful Santa Fina pottery.
Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time and travel to a renowned Tuscan winery in the countryside near San Gimignano. After a tour of its vineyards and wine cellars, sit down to enjoy a wine-tasting session, sampling the region’s full-bodied Vernaccia wine. The only white Tuscan wine to have achieved Italy’s most prestigious wine classification – DOCG status – Vernaccia has been considered to be one of the country’s noble wines since medieval times. Savor its dry, floral tones and compare its rich flavors against samples of other Tuscan wines.
Italians like to eat as they drink, so follow their lead and soak up the delicious wines with some light antipasto. The snacks served during your wines tasting will vary each time, but expect treats like crostini and bruschetta with olives, cheese, ruby-red tomatoes and cured meats.
At the end of your tasting, return to your minivan for your journey to Siena. Your tour finishes back at your hotel.

We did this tour on 15 the April. We really enjoyed Daniel's tour, he was very informative about the history of the area. We spent 1.5 hours in San Gimignano then went on to the Winery where we had an excellent education in tasting wine by Ada. There were only 4 of us on the tour which was great for us. Highly recommended
